This image is just a sampling of what's contained in this freebie. Read on for the rest :)
Lots of hard work went into this one, and I'm super proud of the results. This is a digital kit to use in your Project Life albums. This kit is packed with retro themed goodies, and here they all are. The download links are below each image. (This is due to size - it's much quicker to give you multiple links than one huge download - and this way you can choose which elements you like). Click any image to zoom in and check them out.
First up, title cards. There's plenty to choose from to start your week off right:
Another batch of title cards - these ones have a spot for a favorite photo, and space for journaling. You can print it out and stick your photo on top, or use the layered template to drag your photo in and type in your journaling before printing.
Next, the place where we record our memories, the journaling cards. There's a patterned set for everyday use, a set of days of the week cards, and another set themed for the seasons.
I've got some fun filler cards for you guys too, that match the title and journaling cards. Print them out and use them as is, or layer your photos and embellishments on top.
And how about these week number fillers? With space for small photos or embellishments too.
There's a cool retro alphabet tile pack with this freebie. These would be great in the corner of a journaling card or photo as a monogram.
And check out these fun bottle cap stickers, inspired by real retro milk bottle caps:
Of course, what would one of my freebies be without a set of Photoshop brushes? (They're also in PNG format for those of you without Photoshop or PSE - check out my tutorial here).
Whew! I'm sure now you can see why I'm just a little bit behind in my own Project Life. :)This has taken up all of my nights for the past several weeks, and I am sure relieved to have it done.
If all of these freebies aren't enough for you, I've also listed a bunch of coordinating items for sale in my Etsy shop. The plan is to expand on this line in the future with more retro items.
On to the Etsy shop items:
There's a huge alphabet tile pack, which includes a full set of each letter plus numbers and symbols, in five different colors.
I made this really fun View-Master title card layered PSD for you to insert your photos:
I loved those milk bottle caps, so I made up another set of them here that are a bit more elaborate, along with a set of blank ones that you could add your own text and graphics to, or print out and embellish with stamps or your handwriting. I especially love the yellow & orange one!
I also made some Spirograph themed flair buttons:
And some simple days of the week buttons. (They're the same color as my background, so I had to add a strip of gray to my image below so they'd pop for you, instead of just looking transparent. A little oops on my part, as I didn't think about my background before doing the buttons, but I love the color so I stuck with it).
I also made this awesome set of retro monogram stickers (and journaling cards you can use with them). You can drag on one of the stickers and resize it to fit the circle on the card, or you can add your own text to that area.
Finally, I've got a set of layered Instagram collage templates. There are 8 templates - 2 for each size: 4x6, 3x4, 4x4, and 6x6. Photo sizes range from 1" to 3". A fun way to add a few extra Instagram pics into your layouts. These are layered PSD files. Each has an "Insta Collage" button layer included in the template, which you can turn off. And the pack includes the button on it's own so you could use it for other things.
Don't think these only go with the retro kit. Turn off that button layer and it's a simple template that you can use in your current Project Life albums.
I wish I had time to pull together an example Project Life layout to show all of you, but I just didn't get there. I plan to post a layout in the next few weeks using these, so you can really get a feel for how they look. In the meantime, if any of you use my designs, I'd LOVE to feature your layout on this blog. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos and a little information, and I'll post it here.
